‘I am an artisan raw food chef and home cook, author, entrepreneur, spiralizing expert and self-confessed juice junkie. I was once an unhealthy vegetarian and have since lost 9 stones and cured myself of chronic disease through juicing and raw foods. Read my full story here. As the founder of Explore Raw™ I create recipes, run workshops and classes at my Cookery School in London and host life changing raw food events and retreats in Portugal. I launched the world’s very first vegan raw food bootcamp in 2013 and continue to run annual Raw Juice Camp events today.
I have been working with raw foods for 7 years and use my 20+ years training experience to benefit learners in the kitchen rather than the boardroom: exchanging a full time corporate career for a more holistic approach to people’s development.
I have appeared in various media including The Guardian, The Sunday Times, Vogue, Tatler, Porter, Vegan Life, Vegan Food & Living magazine and on TV on Channel 4’s ‘What Britain Bought’ with retail guru Mary Portas. My drive is to bring living raw food recipes and more thoughtful eating to a more mainstream audience and to help people bring their food to life!
My recipes focus on simple and creative dishes that help make raw food more accessible. I create delicious recipes from healthy living foods that make meal times exciting, decadent, simple, nourishing and moreish! My dishes often focus on activated living foods and I live my bring your food to life! strapline by living and teaching the principles and importance of enzyme rich, activated living ingredients. My raw food menu is not a diet shopping list but an opportunity to reconnect to a more traditional, simple and healthful way of eating to give the body a rest from processed foods.’
